Greenhouse or glasshouse

Can represent either that one has been cosseted or over cared for in life, not exposed to difficulties or harshness.

But equally it can refer to your vulnerable growing parts of oneself or others than need care and attention to help them grow. It could equally apply to a new project or aspect of yourself you are working on. It might be something in your experience that protects fragile aspects of your growth, but something that is itself fragile. Also a subtle but real barrier between the energy of your life and the aspects of you that need to grow. See: growth of something; Glass.

Example: I met a man who seemed to be something of an adept or master; a sort of Caucasian white guru type. At first I understood his name to be Faser Dan Li. Then gradually it became Father Li. This I understood to represent fatherly and the name of Faser Dan Li to mean faster than light. Anyway, this guru figure took me into very large greenhouses. Stretching away into the distance tiny seedlings were growing, most of them about four inches in height. As I watched some youths drove in on cross-country motorbikes and roared around the place. Faser Dan Li did nothing to prevent them. But when they had gone he looked at me and said, “Those are your emotions. They are wild and out of control. As such they could damage the tender growth of souls represented here by these little plants. Until your emotions are much more fully calmed and under control you cannot be given the keys of insight into other peoples being.”

Useful Questions and Hints:

Have I ever cared for plants and watched them grow?

Was the dream greenhouse linked in any way with scenes of vulnaribility?

Did the dream show any violence?
